Apple releases OS X 10.6.2, kills support for Atom processors

Mon, Nov 9, 2009


Apple today released OS X 10.6.2, and surprise surprise, it kills support for the atom processor that’s quite popular in the PC netbooks that run un-auhtorized versions of OS X.  Apple has undoubtedly been keeping an eye on the growing popularity of Hackintosh’s, and they either a) finally got around to doing something about it or b) the market was growing at such a rate that they were forced to do something about it.

Some of the tweaks and bug fixes include:

  • an issue that might cause your system to logout unexpectedly
  • a graphics distortion in Safari Top Sites
  • Spotlight search results not showing Exchange contacts
  • a problem that prevented authenticating as an administrative user
  • issues when using NTFS and WebDAV file servers
  • the reliability of menu extras
  • an issue with the 4-finger swipe gesture
  • an issue that causes Mail to quit unexpectedly when setting up an Exchange server
  • Address Book becoming unresponsive when editing
  • a problem adding images to contacts in Address Book
  • an issue that prevented opening files downloaded from the Internet
  • Safari plug-in reliability
  • general reliability improvements for iWork, iLife, Aperture, Final Cut Studio, MobileMe, and iDisk
  • an issue that caused data to be deleted when using a guest account
